    Description

    Looking for assistance for making wood products, furniture reconstruction/refinishing, and more.

    Two long-term gay artists and craftsmen are looking for a multifaceted assistant for help with making twig and paper pencils, twig lamps, canes and walking sticks and and implementing other product ideas. Also need assistance with picture framing, refinishing/repurposing vintage furniture, and clothing design and reconstruction. A skilled craftsperson making furniture from reconstructed/reclaimed furniture is ideal too. Would consider marketing your products in our shop and on our website if you are also an artist or craftsperson. We sometimes need assistance in our resale shop & art gallery located in Palm Springs, CA.
    Looking for a single gay-friendly person (straight or not) available for longer than a few months as this is a part-time employment opportunity. An employee must be an USA citizen, have a USA work visa or a green card. Middle age, seniors, and introverts are encouraged to apply.
